Office

The project is an office space situated in an office building in Kunming, Yunnan Province. And Kunming is a charming place where multiple ethnicities gather together. The profound history of the local area breeds a rich, colorful and unique culture, which provides the inspiration for this design, hence making the office space original and special. Taking the earth tone as the basic hues, the reception area mainly adopts black, light yellow and dark grey colors. As for materials, the designer selected manually calcined grey bricks, rough stones from Karst areas, and wood taken from the floor slabs left after the demolition of the old house, so that the waste material can be rejuvenated in a new place. The overall ambiance is modest and gentle, and even anxious customers can calm down quickly. In this square space, the conference room and workspace are arranged at the street-facing areas, with the floor-to-ceiling glass introducing plenty of natural light into the interior. During the summer, bamboo curtains can be used to cut out the strong sunlight. Transparent glass is used between the negotiation room and the public area to extend the view and introduce light. Moreover, flexible movable furniture provides more possibilities for multifunctional uses of the space. The main working area is placed along the windows, and light is brought in from the sides. The side-by-side station arrangement creates a more collaborative working environment. The columns along the window are artfully integrated with the bookcases. The arc-shaped corner area with a better view is reserved as the employee’s resting area. Playful furnishing along with comfortable furniture creates an environment that eases work pressure and stimulates interaction and dialogue between employees.
